My boss wants this site up by Monday and i am freaking out because the only thing i cant get to work is this search bar that i had to talk him into paying for. I have all the settings correct and the buddypress search boxes clicked as well. all the configuration is the same as another site i have used this plugin on too so i know it should be working, which makes me think that there might be something corrupted somewhere. There are not any other plugins that i can find that would be making it not find the groups.
Have you tried changing the template or disabling all the plugins temporary (except buddypress and search of course)? All I can think of is, that maybe some other plugin is conflicting with the search.
I will take a look at your configuration as soon as I get close to a comp (in 2 hours), right now I’m only on my phone.
